Burgess 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa Valley. This wine shows off dense Cabernet Sauvignon character accented with vanilla, balancing spices and toasty oak from traditional barrel aging.  Complex, elegant and delicious. 92 Points Wine Enthusiast


Lo Nuevo Lunares 2012 Verdejo - Spain. This Verdejo is very aromatic with bright pineapple, spring flowers and peach aromas. On the palate the wine is lengthy, full flavored, slightly creamy, ripe with exotic fruit, and fresh herbs. This wine displays a vibrant acidity and long finish where one can appreciate the minerality.

Napa Cellars 2012 Sauvignon Blanc - Napa Valley. Vibrant aromas of ruby red grapefruit, key lime and hints of grass. The 100% stainless steel fermentation allows the wine to retain the fresh fruit flavors of pineapple, guava, passion fruit and citrus tones. The wine has a lush mouthfeel of delicately balanced acid and fruit with a fresh, crisp lemon zest finish.

Michael David 2012 Chardonnay - Lodi. Elegant with beautiful fruit flavors of peach jam, white currants, and tropical notes of pineapple and mango dominate.  A creamy mid palate showcases the wines partial French oak while adding gentle touches of butter, vanilla, and honey.


Dreaming Tree Crush 2012 Red Blend - North Coast, CA. A blend of the North Coast’s finest varieties, this wine has some great caramel oak and mixed berry characters on the nose, juicy raspberry flavors, and full-but-soft and approachable tannins. 54% Merlot, 20% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, & 8% Other

Epica 2013 Malbec -  Argentina. Aromas of wild berry and dark plum with a hint of coffee. The wine offers a floral and fruity character with notes of red currants and cherries.

Smith & Hook 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Central Coast, CA. Bold aromas rise out of the glass, recalling blackberries and black cherry cola supported by hints of spicy cloves. A rich texture on the palate supported by supple tannins make this wine a perfect combination of finesse and power. Fine grained tannins on the finish give this Cabernet Sauvignon a dryness that nicely complements its broad mouthfeel and lush flavors.
